lawmakers went head to head with congressional leaders on nsa spying. for the head of the discussion told me their discussion was frank. you had a very stern message to deliver. >> i think we had a very robust and strong message. this mass surveillance which has come through the allegations is something that is disturbing to european citizens. they feel very uneasy. they don't know why it's happening, why their strongest ally is doing it. >> reporter: and today they had more to talk about regarding spain when they collected data from 60 million phone calls in 30 days, leading to one more u.s. ambassador's summon to explain. european officials say that the surveillance in spain and france only included the metadata. but it is the spying on heads of state that is causing the greatest outrage. they say this does not mean the nsa was going rogue or operating out of bounds, but part of it is to ensure they are getting effective guidance from policymakers. it seems to me they were not getting that effective guidance because they were going ground what the president knew or appeared to have authori
that the nsa surveillance programs were bound by the rule of law. they targeted security threats, not the communications of ordinary people. we now know at that moment the nsa was morn toring ordinary europeans and tapping the cell phone of german chancellor, angela merkel. for almost five years, the president had no idea that the u.s. was listening in on the cell phone of angela merkel and 35 other world leaders. the wall street journal citing unnamed sources said it wasn't until an internal review was launched that the president found out about the top-level spying. >> we can take steps to put in place greater oversight, greater transparency and constraints on the use of this authority. >> reporter: the white house says that they've stopped spying on chancellor merkel. a german paper revealed that the u.s. embassy is the site of a major american listening post, spying on the german government and on business leaders here in berlin. the leaks and outrage continued to spread. now in spain where documents leaked by edward snowden suggest the nsa man tored 60 million spanish phone

but that was in comparison to the republicans. but when you look at the weight of everything, particularly syria, nsa -- we always forget about that one -- health care, and a shutdown, that's why he's sitting there. when you have a majority getting over 51%, and by the way, even his likability rating is upside-down for the first time. people are starting to not even like him as much. >> one side of the political coin, let's go to the others right now and see how republicans are faring in this latest poll. they're the ones who shut down the government. >> they are. things are so bad for them. we asked, if you could have a choice of a third party candidate the or the democratic or the republican candidate, what would you pick? independent candidates actually finished ahead of the republicans. once again the republican party had a new low in their personal rating, their brand rating. they had another low in their approval rating on capitol hill. seeing a question like this where they can't -- where they finish behind a mythical independent candidate, as bad as things are for the president, they're still worse
have other news, president obama has reportly ordered the nsa to stop eavesdropping on joe kernen. no, stop eaves dropping on the headquarters of the imf and world bank. the order is said to be the latest move, of course, by the white house to demonstrate its willingness to curb at least some surveillance in the wake of weeks by former nsa contractor edward snowden. >>> a number of comments about janet yellen starting to come from the senate. richard shelby says he would oppose efforts to block her nomination with a filibuster unless some disturbing disclosure emerge. his comments come after senator rand paul said he instead to withhold her nomination. and senator lindsay graham has vowed an effort to block white house nominees until the obama administration comes forward with more information about benghazi. shelby's comments are important because democrats would need to pick up only five republicans vote to clear procedural hurdles and bring yellen's nomination to a full senate vote. yellen's nomination needs only a simple majority. joining us this morning from washington is eamon a
with trouble surrounding the irs, syria and nsa have left president obama with an approval rating of an all time low. a new nbc news "wall street journal" poll finds 42% approve of the job he's doing as president. that's down ten points from when he started his second term. right now 51% disapprove. for the first time in the survey the president's positive/negative rating is upside down, 45% to 41%. public pinto the gop has sunk to a new low. 22% see the party in a positive light. democrats fared 15 points better. those in the poll say they will vote independent in the 2014 elections compared to thele 28% who say they will vote republican. nicole. >> nicole, let's digest things here. president's ratings at an all time low. the republican party's approval ratings at an all time low in the nbc news "wall street journal" poll. i don't see things getting better for either side coming out of the government shutdown and any republicans thinking they are getting a boost by the president's problems can look at these polls and others and see it's just not enough to be against their guy, republicans

. that drop is due to the appearance of detachment on issues like health care and nsa. >> i think he needs to step up his visibility on the questions. i have no doubt he is doing it internally because i know how he operates, but the public needs to see that. that's what is driving the personal ratings down. >> not just the president who is getting two thumbs down, but they hit another all time low. just 22% to the gop positively. a majority, 53% gives the party negatively. the way we asked this question, positive and neutral and negative. that's hard work. you have to earn it. congressional leaders from senate republican leader mitch mcconnell and harry reid and house speaker, john boehner. you have the highest negative ratings. the public is voicing frustration and nearly three quarters think congress is contributing to the problems in washington instead of working to solve them. 29% said that their own congressional representatives deserve to be reelected. that's the business anymore. 63% claim that they would give a new person a chance over their own member of congress. the highest perc
-ed in "the l.a. times." you called for changes to be made to the nsa's massive phone data gathering program and say it's the evidence that it has made us safer is limited. instead it appears that the utility of the metadata program has been conflated with the success of other collection efforts. how do you determine how much surveillance, then, is too much? >> i think we have to weigh what is the size of the program, what is the magnitude of the collection and what are the results it's getting? and even more than that, even if it met that test, even if the metadata program was very successful, we also have to ask, is it necessary to collect all this data or can the program be restructured? in my view, the program can be restructured in a way that has the telecommunications providers retain their own data. i doesn't require the government to get all that data. when we suspect that a phone number is connected to a plot, then we go to the phone company, much as we would do in a criminal investigation. so i think we can get the same information we need. we can continue to protect the country. w
